At The British Library with Saul Williams

We headed down to London yesterday for a meeting with motion graphics designer, Matt Derrick, then carried it over into our attendance of an unusual appearance of poet-performer and hip hop activist, Saul Williams, at The British Library.

Matt joined us and we ended up dancing all night with Williams, who joined us on the floor and (to my excitement) let me join him on the mic for the inspirational diaspora-anthem, Black Stacy.

Saul is one of our biggest theatrical, musical, lyrical and textual inspirations; his ambitious work Trent Reznor (another of our inspirations) blew me away in 2006/7 and I’ve been hooked since. The guy is a legend and this is a shout out and plug for his new album: when it comes out, check out MartyrLoserKing.
